1st Goal: Messi 15′
2nd goal: Messi 24′
3rd goal: Rubén Castro 38′ (Real Betis)
Overall Performance: Barcelona played really well in the first half. The two goals from Messi took the match away from them. But, in the 38th minute Betis scored a goal, and the game got a new dimension. Barca had to face some great challenges in the second half. In fact, Betis missed few very easy chances to score. Barca was lucky indeed as two shots hit the post. Barca also missed few easy chances.
Best Performer: Obviously, Messi. This 5 feet 7 inches Argentine international is now ahead of Gerd Muller and Pele. He scored not less than 86 goals in a calender year. Messi has few matches to play. This guy is INCREDIBLE.
Worst Performer: Both Pedro and Alexis had a tough night. Pedro only scored one goal this season. He has not scored any goals in his last 18 appearances.
Turning Point: Messi’s second goal took the match away from the host.
